what's up eveyone, I bought some simple green today and I was just wondering how do you guys put it on.

do you put it on take it off, race?

clean them, apply it then race?

or do I leave it on and put it in a bag let em soak it up?

I've done one tire and its great!!!

Apply about 10-15 mins before a run, then wipe off. (but no need to worry if there is some left over)

I brought a product over from the UK called "Grip" sold as Tyre power here in the USA...

I used it for many years on real cars and it worked very well.. now i clean wheels and tyres in SG and slip this stuff on when they are waiting to be used...

makes tyres stick like shit to a blanket !

I just got permission to bottle it and sell it in smaller amounts and its US mail friendly... which is more than my 140 lb dog is ....

Phil

I'm wondering about this myself. I checked the local harware store and there were at least 3 different products with Simple Green on the label.

seems to me like most solvents work. I've used everything (by accident. I don't need sauce to race... yet ) from nitro fuel to WD40 to 'muc-off' bike cleaner (seems to me just to be a kind of simple green. But it's pink )
